A research data repository is a subtype of a sustainable information infrastructure which provides long-term storage and access to research data that is the basis for a scholarly publication. Research data means information objects generated by scholarly projects for example through experiments, measurements, surveys or interviews.
A research data repository listed in re3data.org is either:
a data provider if it offers research data and its metadata (ideally exposing metadata via interfaces),
a service provider (e.g. a portal) if it harvests the metadata of research data from data providers as a basis for building value-added services.
